Violent and Nonviolent Revictimization of Women Abused in Childhood.
Irwin, Harvey J.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n10 p1095-110 Oct 1999
Investigates the relationship between the severity of childhood trauma and proneness to victimization in adulthood in a sample of 155 Australian women. A tendency for both violent and non-violent revictimization was found. Findings suggest that some coping styles mediate the relationship between childhood abuse and victimization in childhood, whereas aspects of attachment styles may serve to moderate this relationship.
